part of our spring 2016 Food Policy for Breakfast Seminar Series
In September, 2014, New York City inaugurated a new policy of universal free lunch in its stand alone middle schools. After a year and a half of experience with the universal approach, what do we know, and what do we want to know? A panel of researchers, educators and advocates will consider what we have learned thus far, and what else we need to know about free lunch at school.
